Mask Madness, Vol. 3: Botanic Farm Black Soybean Milk Pudding Sleeping Pack

Tuesday, March 7, 2017
Good evening! Tonight I bring to you a review of a mask that I tried fairly recently. This sleeping pack is by Botanic Farm, my first product from this Korean brand. 

The mask smelled nice, like something nutty has been roasted. Not from added fragrance though! 

Water, Cyclopentasiloxane, Butylene Glycol, Niacinamide, Betaine, Cyclopentasiloxane, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Lactobacillus/Soybean Ferment Extract, Theobroma Cacao Extract, Gardenia Florida Fruit Extract, Glycine Soja Seed Extract, Monascus Extract, Milk Protein, Carthamus Tinctorius Flower Extract, Glycerin, Urea, PEG-240/HDI Copolymer Bis-Decyltetradeceth-20 Ether, Polysorbate 20, Dimethicone, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Caprylyl Glycol, Dimethiconol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Adenosine, Aminomethyl Propanol, Sodium Polyacrylate, PVM/MA Copolymer, Maltodextrin, Carbomer, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol.

 I love the texture. It's squishy, seriously like flan or a creamy mango pudding. Going on the face, it feels like it would be hydrating..... until it started to sting intensely, immediately after application.

On a scale from 1 to 10, 1 being a slight prickling feeling (Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream does this to me) and 10 being a severely painful burning sensation, this is a five. It's a sharper stinging sensation that does not fade away for me. As I lay there, my face kind of cold from the wetness of the product, I found it kind of sad that my last thought drifting off to sleep was that I hoped the stinging would stop soon.

I woke up to severely irritated skin. Contrary to the promised "whitening", my skin was EXTRA dull, flaky, and dry. It felt like I had just done a glycolic peel and my skin was taxed to the limit. Really bummed because I've read many good reviews about this mask and I greatly enjoy fermented facial products. Instead of enjoying any benefits, I'm now on recovery mode to soothe my angry skin.

I purchased it on sale at MeMeBox for $20. Also available at Ulta, for $28.
